    My grandfather was an admiral and my dad was a captain in the navy. This day means a lot to me. My grandfather led a convoy of personal carriers on the Normandy invasion. Said it was the worst thing he ever saw. Guys jumping out only to be killed by the lift gate dropping. Only spoke of it once after some maccallan.

    God bless all of them.

    I've been hearing "Rooster" on the radio quite a bit this week.

    Related note... A co-worked asked me today if they played "One" by Metallica, on the radio. I didn't hear it. He also mentioned the movie that the video was based on, but couldn't recall the title. Anyone know?

    If memory serves, he was a part of the 101st Airborne "The Screaming Eagles", and since they didn't have eagles in Vietnam, the troops started calling the guys wearing the Screaming Eagle patch "roosters". He could have already had the nickname before getting there, but I do believe that is how he got it. Maybe Brett knows, he is the resident AIC expert.

    Either way, great song. Best harmonies of any hard rock band ever in my opinion. Layne and Jerry's voices were perfect matches.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    By troops I meant the South Vietnamese troops, I wasn't very clear on that.
